Trying to fill out an assessment form for SunGuard Recover2Cloud. One of the question on the form is

Column 13:  Total Image Data - How much data (in GB's) is in the form of images?  i.e. JPG, PDF, TIFF etc...

What do they mean by image data? How do I determine the size in GB?

you can use windirstat

http://windirstat.info/

it will give you statistics of what you select - either a folder or entire volume - and on the right will break down by file extension, giving the total number of files and size

the image data is any image format as listed there also bmp, gif, png and other formats

you may simply run this on the command prompt to see the total files and size in bytes.

DIR C:\*.JPG;*.BMP;*.PDF;*.TIFF /S

where C: is the drive letter of the volume where your data files are stored.

that message is just a sample of the file extensions; there could be numerous other image formats not listed
